Billboard-charting recording artists Chelsey Green and The Green Project tear down all stereotypes of the violin and viola by fusing traditional classical technique with genres including R&B, Pop, Soul, Funk, Jazz, Hip Hop and Gospel.
While studying classical masterpieces, Green had a vision to form an ensemble that could utilize live string performance to enhance current popular music, just as it did in the days of Marvin Gaye, Bill Withers, Michael Jackson and more. In 2010, her dream became reality upon the formation of her ensemble, The Green Project.
Chelsey Green and The Green Project have been honored to perform in many highly-regarded venues around the world and have shared the stage with international artists including Stevie Wonder, Maysa, Jeff Bradshaw, Chrisette Michele, Frank McComb and others. Classically soloing in New York’s prestigious Carnegie Hall at the age of 16, Green’s varied performance resume includes performances at the Late Show with David Letterman, the Theater at Madison Square Garden, Saint Lucia Jazz Festival, White House Correspondents’ Dinner Reception, BET Honors Dinner, Essence Music Festival, Blues Alley, The John F. Kennedy Center and recent tours of Haiti, Egypt, Kuwait, Oman, Bahrain and Moldova.
